I find many
click beetles hanging around my porch light throughout the
and this brown one is the most prevalent. Click Beetle
adults eat plants and the
larvae eat seeds, roots, and sometimes other insects.
They make a clicking noise,
hence the name, and if they are turned on their backs, they
will click and flip into
the air, righting themselves. They are probably fun to
play with if you enjoy
handling beetles. Read more about them on Wikipedia.
